I had two on my brother's computer, they were so loud, when you turned the computer on it sounded like a jet taking off. Also, if I left the side unscrewed, the fan would rock the side right off.
Now you see why I took them out...

Well screw that then, I was thinking of getting 2 Thermaltake Smart Fan II's instead, I think they would be sufficient enough. Anyone got any recommendations for fans? I'm just looking for something that can pump out some good CFM and other than the Thermaltakes nothing seems to come close to a Tornado unless they're 120mm. I guess I could go for a 120mm and then a smaller 80mm one around the CPU, by the way these are going on the side panels.

I've always liked Panaflo fans, some of them may be somewhat loud, but they are effective and only need to be ran at about half their speed so that is pretty tolerable.

119 CFM actually, and thanks a lot Shumway I'll check it out. I've been dealing with Canada Computers so far but they don't seem to have much of a selection.

...heh, 60 miles per second ><
